Israel Aerospace Industries orders SkyHopper Combo

  • Mobilicom receives the first order for its SkyHopper Combo device from Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) subsidiary following successful integration and field testing
  • The IAI subsidiary will use these units to initiate marketing and sales of its systems to Israeli government.
    27 January 2021 – Mobilicom Limited (Mobilicom or the Company, ASX: MOB) is pleased to announce it has received the first orders for its SkyHopper Combo device from a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).
    IAI will use the units to initiate marketing and sales of its systems to government customers, based on the first of its kind solution providing it with a cutting-edge technology and a time to market advantage.
    IAI is Israel’s major aerospace and aviation manufacturer, producing aerial and astronautic systems for both military and civilian usage. IAI designs, develops and produces civil aircraft, drones & fighter aircraft, missile, avionics, and space-based systems, banking revenues of more than US$4 billion annually.
    The volume of the order is not material at this stage, though the first orders are of importance to the Company as IAI is basing its new drone platform on the SkyHopper Combo product for future sales to the Israeli Government.
    SkyHopper Combo is a first-of-its-kind, small & lightweight 3-in-1 solution, providing a highly secured, broadband wireless datalink that can operate with or without network infrastructure. This device coupled with Mobilicom’s ControliT secured cloud server enables configuration, network management, fleet management and tracking.
    “Having commenced beta testing of SkyHopper Combo with the IAI subsidiary last month, Mobilicom is pleased to receive the first orders so quickly, proving the capability of our technology,” CEO Oren Elkayam said.
    “Other customers and partners are also testing this new solution and we expect additional sales over the coming months,” he said.
    Conventional solutions typically provide an independent direct datalink that has limited operational distance and is dependent on the availability of a cellular network. The SkyHopper Combo is unique in its ability to combine both solutions enabling connectivity anywhere and at any time.
